Coronavirus- Staying At Home With The VX-300
Since I've been staying at home so much, I've had plenty of time to do maintenance on the bikes. I've done oil, coolant & brake fluid changes on all three bikes. For the past couple of weeks, I haven't been riding as much as I usually do. But, since the X-300 is the smallest & lightest bike to get in and out of the garage, I've been riding the VX-300 a little more. Every evening, I've been taking it out just riding around the subdivision, about 4.5 miles round trip. I normally wear all the riding gear (full face helmet, jacket, boots, gloves Ect), but on these rides, since I'm averaging 25 to 30 MPH and no traffic to speak of on the neighborhood streets, I've been riding helmetless with just sunglasses on for eye protection (feels pretty good).
The subdivision is much different with the Coronavirus going on. Seeing all the cars parked in the driveways is an odd sight. Many more people out in their front yards, standing around talking to their neighbors. Also a lot more people waving hello to me, as I slowly cruise by. They seem much more friendlier now more than ever. Its also strange to see no heavy urban traffic congestion & bumper to bumper gridlock here in the Tampa Bay area. Has the pandemic caused any changes in your riding habits?
